It's funny. Less than two weeks after I bought this UPS, Staples sends a review request. Normally, within two weeks, there'd be nothing to say. This time, however, there is. I bought this unit based on past experiences with APC products over the last couple of decades+. Always been a reliable unit, that meets or exceeds its specifications. I live in the Santa Cruz mountains, rather out in the woods. Figured power would be an issue when the weather hits. So, installed this Backups unit. My communications are all dependent on my cable internet modem. So the ups is powering a 32" smart TV, a CFL lamp (11W/23W stand type), my 2TB backup drive, a 5 port gigabit router, a Samsung microcell 'tower' and a Panasonic cordless phone unit. (Laptop has it's own battery...) And a small sound bar. Early this week, wham! All power off for miles. UPS running happily. Turned off TV/monitor and lamp to save juice. Called power Co. Checked outage on smartphone thru wi-fi. Outage lasted over an hour. The Backups ran thru it all, keeping me on line and with telephone. Showed no sign of running low. Always liked APC because of their reliability and that their lightly loaded runtime is so good. Proved it again. Thanks Staples, and thanks, APC! (I'm an electronic technician, working with backup power for 40 years +, among other things. So I've been there.) The unit's right under my feet, doing it's job as I type. Nice to know I'm able to communicate when it goes dark around here.

I buy APC's for the obvious reason, of using them on my computer to prevent spikes, and so I don't lose data if there's a momentary interruption in the power supply. I've lost a lot of stuff from lightning strikes and electrical surges over the years, including a $1000. treadmill. So, hopefully these things will work with the next 'big one' that hits my home.

My partial disgruntlement: it has a gadget for preventing spikes thru the phone wire - which recently cost me a DSL router that wasn't protected on that line. Using the new APC's phone line protector messed up the DSL system, and I could get no signal at all. So I bought a $5. supplemental gadget, plugged it into the APC, and ran the phone wires thru it, and it works fine that way.

I also don't like its alarm system. The lights are small, and whether they're flashing, or beeping or burping and what they're indicating is all a mystery to me because I inevitably lose the instructions sheet over the intervening years that gives the details on such matters. Why can't there be a good sized, well labeled light saying 'battery is dead' and another saying 'surge protection is fried' and the like? Making one little light serve multiple purposes seems awfully stupid.

The batteries are supposedly replaceable too - but they basically cost the same as the entire unit, so why bother.

So, for offering spike protection, I expect it works. For the rest, I'm less than thrilled. It's a so-so product, but I haven't found something better yet.

We have used these APC units for years... eventually they wear out and that is the only reason we buy them every now and then. They work great and have protected our PCs from spikes and power outages every time!

APC 600VA UPS

Comments about APC Back-UPS® NS 600VA 8-Outlet Power-Saving UPS:

I am using this unit to protect my Desktop PC & Flat Panel Monitor. So Far (1 week) the Unit has worked as advertised and responds to very small fluctuations of line voltage when set on High Sensitivity. It apparently uses a relay to switch to battery power as there is a click each time it senses a powerline change outside the limits I have set. It is quite heavy and takes up a bit of desk space. This is not a problem for me as I have it tucked behind my flat panel monitor. It should be noted that I have it plugged into the same outlet as my Laser Printer and each time the Printer is activated from Sleeping state the UPS unit records a glitch on the power line & kicks in momentarily. I have not investigated to see if this would happen in the Medium or Low sensitivity modes. Also, not sure if this frequent activation will shorten the life of the unit. If that is an issue you might power your Laser printer from a separate source. I like the PowerChute SW provided from APC as it lets me adjust the unit & tells me how it is performing although it does use a USB port. I have Not yet tried letting the UPS box shutdown my PC system as it is suppose to do automatically in a power outage greater than 2 Min, (my setting) so I can't comment on that performance.
